We are delighted to welcome you to our website. We hope you find the information here interesting and useful, whether you are Orthodox Christians who live permanently in Alanya or are just here on vacation.
For those Orthodox Christians who wished to visit Alanya for years but did not know if there was a functioning Orthodox Church there, they can now see all they need to know in the “SCHEDULE OF SERVICES” section. In this section, there is a listing of the times and locations for the Divine Liturgy and other Holy Services each week.
In the “NEWS” section, you will receive information about events and special occasions of the Orthodox Community of Alanya and the Orthodox Metropolitan District of Pisidia, Side, and Antalya.
The greater purpose of this website is to foster community and connect all Orthodox of Alanya to a great spiritual family, so that no one feels alone as long as they live in this beautiful area.
On this first Sunday after Pascha, the Gospel reading and hymns all speak of the doubt that St. Thomas the Apostle showed with regard to the Resurrection of Christ (even with the assurances of the other Apostles). The Holy Gospels also reveal that the other Apostles showed the same skepticism, despite the testimony of the Myrrh-bearing women (see Luke 24:11,21, 37).
